Mr D Wedgwood Critiques - 11th and 12th August 2012

The Staffordshire Bull Terrier Club of QLD Inc.

Firstly I would like to thank the Officers and committee of The Staffordshire Bull Terrier Club of Queensland Inc. For giving me the opportunity to judge this show and a special thank you to Nicki and Byron for looking after us after the show.

The quality of dogs shown was exceptional and unfortunately many were unplaced, many places can and will change in the future.

To all exhibitors for allowing me to go over your dogs of which were shown in a very high standard and taking my decisions, thank you.
